The college progression data or information on ‘feeder schools’ to third level for autumn 2021 is available today on providing school-by-school information on which students have progressed to which colleges this year.

To view the information on your school for the last ten years on, visit 'Find a secondary school' and when you locate your school click on 'College Progression Stats' on the right of the page under the heading 'More on this school' . Links to whole school evaluations and subject inspections reports can also be found on the same menu. does not provide 'league table' ranking of schools as very often the progression percentage (as published in the newspapers) is not a true rate of progression as repeat leaving cert students are included in the data from colleges which results in many of the schools with the highest progression rates in excess of 100%

Some of these anamolies also arise as information provided by the third level colleges can include all incoming first-year students that attended a given school even though a percentage of them may have sat the exams in previous years, e.g. they may have dropped out of another course and started again or delayed going to college for a year. The 'Leaving Cert Sits' data this year, reflects the number of students in an individual school that sat Leaving Cert Exams or were awarded predicted grades. This year's data also shows the number of students enrolling in the newly form Technological Universities, i.e Munster Technology University and the Technological University of the Shannon.

Whilst there are anomolies in how the progression figures are reported, as in previous years patterns of progression can still be determined from the data available, As in previous years, the data for 2021 unsurprisingly shows that progression numbers were highest in the private schools, but disadvanted schools (DEIS Schools) have aso performed well with 62% going on to higher education. Nearly all students in fee-paying schools progressed to third level institutions (99.7%) with non-fee paying schools sending the majority of their students to college (80%).
